PM Update: Wash, Rinse, Repeat

By Ian Livingston

Pleasant weather persists; Mild and partly sunny Saturday

Summer high pressure often brings hazy, humid, and hot conditions to the area -- not this time. A long easterly fetch across the Atlantic is bringing us an afternoon with deep blue skies, mild temperatures in the mid 80s, increased but still low humidity, and plenty of sun. Patchy cumulus clouds will decrease this evening as conditions remain pleasant and temperatures fall through the 70s.

Tonight: Mostly clear conditions early may trend towards variably cloudy by sunrise. Areas closest to the ocean are more likely to see clouds as winds from the east continue to blow moisture in off the Atlantic. Temperatures will drop to the low 60s in the west, mid 60s in the east, and around 70 in the District.

Tomorrow: Morning cloudiness (more in the east, less in the west) will largely burn off as the day progresses, allowing temperatures to reach into the low and mid 80s across the area. Light east winds will continue throughout the day as humidity remains low to moderate.

Tropics: Tropical Storm Fay is nearing the western coast of Florida and is expected to continue drifting west and northwest, passing at least partially over water in the Gulf of Mexico. Little or no strengthening is anticipated, but historic rainfall and severe weather continue across the state. (Watch Live Coverage from Jacksonville, Fla.)

With the outflow circulation from Fay expanding dramatically today, it wouldn't be surprising to see more high clouds in the region tomorrow as that high slides out, particularly in central and southern VA.

Currently 82F, E winds, 30.29, falling, Cu moving E--W below Ci uncinus moving W--E, today.

My best guess: some moisture from Fay may advect toward us late next week. Rain will be more of a soaker than a cloudburst when it gets here. Cold front arriving Monday may stall south of us, providing a focus for some precipitation.
